About Piccalilli and the experience of Andy Bell, the head honcho.
Piccalilli is a site that focuses on front-end development and design education. This is via tutorials, courses and a weekly newsletter. The main aim is to make front-end development and design education more accessible and understandable to both beginners and experienced people.
It’s run by Andy Bell—an educator and freelance web designer—based in the U.K. Andy has worked in the design and web industries for well over a decade and in that time, has worked with some of the largest organisations in the world, like Harley-Davidson, BSkyB, Unilever, Oracle, Capita, Vice Media and the NHS.
Over these years, Andy has worked on both extremely large projects for huge organisations and tiny projects for small startups. This has given him a vast experience over a large variety of work, which means the tutorials and courses you read on this site have a pragmatic, flexible approach to them. No shoe fits all sizes, but Andy aims to get as close as possible to that with Piccalilli.
Andy has already started applying that knowledge and experience—aside from Piccalilli—into education material. Firstly, by co-authoring Every Layout with Heydon Pickering, and secondly, running Front-End Challenges Club, which is focused on teaching you front-end development best-practice, via short, fun, challenges.
